Also management does not listen to staff that have been employees long period of time.

He left the store and called right after and told my manager to tell me that I was fired because he "Didn't like my attitude". He came off as a narcissist. I refused to tell him Yes Sir. He was disrespectful sexist and racist."

Former Employee - General Manager says"I worked at Checkers & Rally’s Drive-In Restaurants full-time for less than a year Cons: Broken equiptment, refused to fix because of cost causing food quality and cleanliness issues. No bonus program in place for keeping labor costs down. Extremely poor work life balance. I was required to work 9am until 4 am because people called off, and no one wanted to come in to work. Employees generally hated the job and morale was super low. After talking with subordinates I find out its because they were lied to about their pay. They were promised say, $14 an hour and then when they got their first paycheck it was explained that they were getting $12 an hour but were guaranteed 5 hours of overtime so they were making the same amount (but for 5 more hours of work). Promised 401k with 10% matching and I thought wow thats pretty impressive! When I get the paperwork, it is only 2% matching. Employees routinely had hours missing off of their paychecks (particularly overtime hours). All of the employees concerns created extremely poor work to life balance for me that was completely out of my control. I couldn't take a single day off without the job calling me because someone didn't show and no one knew how to handle the situation because turnover rate was so high from these issues."
